The King Of The Cats (or Cat King) only appeared in one 1952 story, as Catwoman’s brother. He buckled swash.

An obscure enemy of the early X-Men, then of Ka-Zar and Mockingbird, back in the days.

He was never quite developed but he has ties to Latin American mobs, the Mayan gods, the Savage Land, oil cartels and other uncommon story elements. So there’s potential here.
